I had the pleasure of working with Marion at the University of Arkansas. When my husband took a job out of state I had to quickly get a resume ready to go. She helped me tailor my resume and cover letters for the jobs I was applying for. Her assistance and attention to detail helped me land interviews for both of the jobs I was most interested in. Her amazing letter of recommendation sealed the deal for me and I was offered, and accepted, one of the positions. She came to my rescue again when I had to pick up and move across two states this last September. Thanks to working with her on my resume and cover letters, as well as yet another phenomenal letter of recommendation, I was working within a week of moving in to our new apartment. If you are looking for a great experience with a top quality writer - Marion is definitely the person for the job.

-5 stars- The work product was exactly what I was looking for; he was able to meet my unrealistic time frames, available at all hours of the night and was very easy to work with. His help and previous knowledge of the application process allowed me to secure the SBA loan. Thanks Greg!!

    Our website needed a complete reworking after 7 years online and Chris tackled it in the spring of 2012. CC-Web-Design built a new website using the material from the old one, but with W3C compliant coding. Chris spent time making it fast, efficient, and as we requested. Chris is an excellent writer, speller, grammarian and coder, but most of all, he cares and wants it to be correct. CC-Web-Design is now our webmaster, and we appreciate the quality of Chris' work.


    Writing -- it's what we do. Why not come to the best in town? Have you ever read something and said to yourself what are they talking about or why are they being so vague? Your business absolutely needs the most clear, updated, condensed content available. If you want your business to thrive, call us, and we will make it happen.


    My clients have one thing in common: They have created a 'story' with elements of greatness, which they wish to be outstanding through and through. This is how literature finds its way to publishers, audiences, and royalty checks. Whether your project is small or epic, fiction or non-fiction, my business is making it memorable and accurate, riveting, while keeping true to your voice. I make every editing project my own, learning everything about the subject and internalizing the writer's nuance and intention. I am a master of rhythm, momentum. I have recently completed developmental editing of two memoirs, a Hollywood feature screenplay, and numerous PhD dissertations for ESL writers. I am passionate about direct response, persuading people to buy without having felt 'sold.' My reasonable fees are based on simple variables easily negotiated. I look forward to hearing from you!

I have written promotional, educational, and related materials for diverse groups including non-profits, governmental groups, schools, newspapers, and service groups. I have also taught writing skills to all ages. I truly love what I do and would love to help you with any writing needs.


    I enjoy reading and writing both fiction and non-fiction as well as proofreading or editing already written works. I have a Masters Degree in Sociology with an emphasis on English writing, Children's Education, and Gender Studies.


    30 years experience selling retail. I have written catalog copy selling anything, new releases, position pieces, speeches, feature articles for magazines and newspapers on any subject if I have time for some research. I produced my own printed and online catalog selling toiletries, body care products and bath products for pain and stress relief. I'm a professional perfumer and aromatherapist. I've handled advertising and promotion for community events like a blues festival and a Christmas festival. I'm familiar with state and local government as an elected official. I'm an author of fiction and history. My book, Hidden History of Eureka Springs, has just been released by History Press. What distinguishes my writing is my conversational voice which connects with readers. I can write humor or be convincingly authoritative. My blog showcases my writing style.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How do you hire a good grant writer?

    Grants are available to nonprofit organizations, for-profit businesses that qualify for government grants, and individuals who qualify for foundation or government grants. Hiring a good grant writer can help you gain funding in your chosen field. According to the American Grant Writers’ Association, grant writers can help you research potential grant opportunities; write grant proposals, create budgets, and build budget narratives; review written materials before you submit; prepare a business plan; analyze your organization for grant competitive qualities; prepare research grants; help with 501(c)(3) applications for nonprofits; and more. Investing in the right grant writer could result in a financial win for your organization. Generally no licenses or certificates are required to be a good grant writer, but you may want to find a grant writer who has been certified (not just received a certificate of completion) by a reputable organization such as the Grant Professionals Certification Institute. Qualities to look for in a good grant writer include:

    • Proven success writing winning grants, especially in your target area.
    • Strong writing skills.
    • Strong math skills and demonstrated proficiency with budgeting.
    • Careful attention to detail — brilliant grant proposals may be rejected just for formatting errors, so you want someone who follows instructions explicitly.
    • Expertise in your target area.
    • Punctuality and good communication skills.

    How much does a grant writer cost?

    Hiring a grant writer can give you a competitive edge when applying for financial grants for your business or nonprofit organization, or as an individual. The cost to hire a grant writer can vary depending on their academic background, areas of expertise, previous grant writing success and years of experience. According to the Grant Professionals Association, grant writers should be paid hourly or by flat fee. It is unethical for a grant writer to accept a commission or percentage compensation of grant monies received. They can, however, be awarded bonuses in line with the hiring company’s prevailing practices. Here are some examples of average grant writing fees:

    • Hourly rate for grant writers with less experience or fewer grants awarded: $25-$35 per hour.
    • Hourly rate for grant writers with some degree of success: $35-$75 per hour.
    • Hourly rate for grant writers with proven success winning large grants: $75-$150 or more per hour.
    • For a smaller grant, the writer may charge a flat fee of $200-$500 for preparation and submission.  

    Pricing may also vary based on the complexity of the grant application. A federal grant that requires pages of research, budgets and a business plan may take more than 30 hours to prepare. For a high-level grant writer who charges $100 per hour, this means $3,000 or more in grant writing fees.

    Most grant writers will provide you with a total cost estimate before agreeing to the work. You may be required to pay a deposit up front, or the grant writer may work from a retainer. Often, seasoned grant writers pay for themselves in the long run by writing successful grants.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
